E.ON prices and tariffs

Business Energy Tariffs

E.ON business customers can choose from a range of fixed-rate tariffs for between one and three years. Much like the customer side, there’s a discount for paying by monthly direct debit of 7% discount, or 5% if you pay every quarter.

E.ON increased the number of commercial energy accounts they manage by absorbing nPower business energy customers after their acquisition.

Residential Energy Tariffs

E.ON offers customers a range of options to suit their circumstances, some requiring smart meter installation whilst others offering no exit fees. It’s best to check what you’ll need before signing up to make sure the tariff type meets all your needs.

Fixed Tariffs

You’ll know where you stand with these fixed tariffs as you’ll lock in your energy rates for the duration of the contract. 

It’s worth noting that you won’t be able to take advantage of any drops in market prices, but you will also be protected against any rise in energy prices too.
